Antarctica

2017/18

 

Todd and Donette worked for the US Antarctic Program at McMurdo Station during the Austral summer of 2017/18. Both had the opportunity to get into the Dry Valleys, to the sea ice edge and to other amazing places. They wrote an article about their experience, which appeared in the December 2018 edition of Appalachia.
